Anderson defaulted on his loan and the unnamed bank that financed his purchase in 1999 sold the home for $1 million, some $225,000 less than what Anderson paid when he bought it.
MTV featured the 10,000 square-foot mansion on its hit show “Cribs” in 2007. The home has 10 bedrooms, 12 baths, a movie theater and tile imported from Spain.
Anderson rose to fame as a standout on the Atlanta Falcons where he led the team to its first and only Super Bowl appearance in 1999. He helped popularize the Dirty Bird, a popular end zone dance.
But Anderson suffered a knee injury that ended his career in 2001 and has since had a few run-ins with the law. In early 2009, police found Anderson doing cocaine and marijuana in a Buckhead-area bar. Then, in June 2012, the former pro-bowler was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. He’s currently serving a 12-month probation term and had to pay a $700 fine.
